3 Important Steps to Setting Up A Perfect Twitter Account

Everyone is social networking, be it on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn or any other place, but the thing is that not everybody gets it. If you want followers on Twitter you will have to make a page that is inviting and that doesn’t make you look like a wicked dork or a newbie. There are some thing that you may be doing wrong if you just started with Twitter, or even if you’ve been using it for a while. We have some great tips for you to make your Twitter account look great. Check them out below:

1. Your profile name matters

A lot of people use weird profile names for their Twitter account, and that doesn’t always look professional, so I don’t recommend that (like, people use the name of their pet dog as their Twitter name, and then they don’t realize that people are going to see them as @Snoopy everywhere on Twitter). Lots of names are of course already being used on Twitter, but always check if your real name is still available. If it’s not you could include your initials (they don’t even have to be real initials, you can be pretty creative about it). But also keep your name on Twitter short, because tweets can only be 140 characters max, and your name could take up a lot of space otherwise.

2. Fill out your bio

You can use 160 characters for your bio at most, because Twitter doesn’t allow any more than that. It sucks to try to fit a lot of information in only so many characters but you should at least give it a try. People don’t know who you are, and a page can be confusing, so filling out your bio is a great way to end that confusion once and for all. What kind of information do you put in your bio? Just your interests, your hobbies, and if you are setting up a business Twitter, dedicate it all to what your business is about, but also add a little bit of personal information.

3. Your picture

Your picture is very important because it shows who you are, and when people see your picture you won’t be as much of a stranger to them anymore. A reliable, trustworthy face can take away a lot of doubts from people and they might follow you easier. Lots of beginners keep the default egg image, which makes you look like a newbie, and especially if you are a business owner you don’t want to come off as an amateur who doesn’t have a clue. A logo image is also not recommended, because people like personal Twitter accounts, and the whole point if to become closer to people by using Twitter.

So with these 3 easy steps you are good to go. It is easy to make a bad first impression and it is understandable that social networking is difficult if you are not used to it or even from a different generation. Unfortunately it is very much needed for every half-decent business owner in 2013, and you will see that it is not that hard once you have a start.
